Job is ok if you live close by, fellow contractors fun-good
Sr Realty Spc (Former Employee) – ATL – June 3, 2015
As a real estate contractor for FAA, Atlanta, you will do the same duties as a regular FAA real estate employee which includes using all (6-8) of the logistics acquisition-tracking software, performing simple, as well as, complicated land acquisition duties or functions. The actual job has pros and cons. You will be stuck in a cube for 8-hrs a day no chance of telework or getting out of office, but you have flex schedules and RDO's. Most of the FAA employees are great however the ones that have issues with contractor support at times, will often remind you of your status subtly or talk down to you. FAA has little formal training you when you first get there. You will have a few computer based training opportunities, but software training won't teach you the formal processes of completing a task. You will be in limbo for months while trying to learn the systems. Also, the pay is not that good for the job or acquisition duties that you are doing. Don't live more than 30min drive away. Traffic not good there. Good luck.
Job functions easy, laid back culture
